… me

I am Isabel, founder of the travel blog IsaBellevue. I’m a 29 year old travel enthusiast, grown up in a rural town in East Flanders, Belgium.

In 2017, I obtained my master’s degree in psychology and started working in HR. This is what I do in daily life.

In my spare time, I like to go out and explore the world. Every time I can pack my bags to go on vacation, my heart skips a beat. I got the travel bug from my parents, who took me on vacation since I was a kid. From the snowy peaks in South Tyrol to the white sandy beaches in Greece.

And now it’s my turn to pass on the travel bug! In 2023, I became a mom for the first time and I couldn’t be more grateful for that! I really enjoy taking my son to new places and watching his eyes sparkle.

… my travel companions

Let me introduce you to my beloved travel companions: my husband Anthony and our son Emile.

Anthony is the one who is driving me to the most beautiful destinations and who is supporting me in all my (travel) plans and goals – even the less realistic ones. So, I would like to give a big shout-out to the tall man in this picture!

Our baby boy, Emile, accompanies us on our journey since 2023. He is like laughing all the time, except when taking family pictures, I guess.

Together, we live in the rolling Pajottenland region, just outside Brussels.

… our travels

Working at the office for a large amount of time, I like to go outside as much as possible in my spare time. Out of office, into nature! That has become my life motto for the past few years.

I’m an outdoor enthusiast and mountain lover, seeking the best views wherever I go.

My favorite of all times? The Dolomites, for sure. I have travelled to this region many many times, but I still get impressed by those rocky peaks.

Of course, my travels have slightly changed since I became a mom, but I still seek adventure in the trips we take. We mainly focus on active family breaks in Europe, with fun activities along the way.

Besides outdoor recreation, I also love to learn more about the local culture and history of the places we go to.

… IsaBellevue

I like to write about my travel itineraries and to share my tips with other people. That’s why I created my very own travel blog, IsaBellevue, in 2019. At this website, you can read my travel stories and you can find some mini-guides about a wide range of outdoor destinations in Europa. I hope it might help you while planning your next family trip.
